Masters Of War - Lyrics

Come you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
and hide behind desks
I want you to know
we can see through your masks

You ain't never done nothin'
but build to destroy
You play with my world
like it was your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
and you hide from my eyes
Then you turn and run far
when the fast bullets fly

Like Judas of old
you lie and deceive
A world war can be won
you want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
and I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
that runs down my drain

You fasten the triggers
for the others to fire
Then you sit back and watch
While the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion
while the young people's blood
it flows out of their bodies
and into the mud

You've thrown the worst fear
that can ever be hurled
A fear to bring children
into the world
For threatening my babies
unborn and unnamed
Well you're not worth the blood
that runs in your veins

How much do I know
to talk out of turn
You might say that I'm young
You might say I'm unlearned
But there's one thing I know
though I'm younger than you
Even Jesus would never
forgive what you do
Let me ask you one question
is your money that good?
Will it buy you forgiveness?
Do you think that it could?
Well I think you will find
when your death takes its toll
all the money you've made
it can't buy back your soul
No all the money you've made
it won't buy back your soul

And I hope that you die
And your death will come soon
And I'll follow your coffin
in the pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
unto your deathbed
I'll stand over your grave
to make sure that you're dead
